Tommy Lee + Streaming From Home

Headlining Guest: Tommy Lee

Tommy Lee may be famous as the singular drummer from classic rock band Motley Crue, but he is also an active music producer, writer and media producer. His home studio has evolved into an advanced system that allows him not only to provide high quality interviews for networks and outlets looking for his unique take on the world, but also helping him produce his newest album during Covid. We’ll talk to Tommy about how he stays active during the pandemic, and what that means to his work into the future.

New England Chapter: Filming in New England in Today’s New World

Thursday, January 28th @ 2:00PM Eastern

What keeps drawing filmmakers back to New England? Perhaps it’s the historic cities and tranquil countryside. Or maybe the winding coastline and dense forests. Whatever it is, the tight knit community of filmmakers in New England is enough to inspire anyone to film here. 

New England is sure to offer many unique possibilities for filmmakers of any level. However due to the current pandemic and the restrictions it poses, production is guaranteed to look much different. 

Join us at the launch for the New England BMC Chapter to discuss what makes filming in the area advantageous and the ways in which set has changed to adapt to today’s new world.

Hosted by New England Chapter lead Faith Brennan

New York Chapter: Unique Jobs in Film (you probably didn't know about)

Thursday, January 21st @ 7:30PM Eastern

In the post process from start to finish, there’s more than just the edit, the mix and the color grade. You know what an editor does, but what about a VFX editor or a post supervisor? Who’s at the start of the dailies process, who’s there in between to manage the media, who’s responsible for finishing and who supervises it all?

There are so many jobs in post production that you might not know about, and since jobs like these can often be done remotely, some are skills that are more valuable than ever.

Join our brand new New York City BMC Chapter to talk about some of these lesser known positions.

Hosted by NYC Chapter leads: Lily Kleinman & Grace Novak
